Three solo sets, one from each band member, provide a mouth-watering appetizer course before the meaty set from experimental trio Graveyards. Using home-made electronic and acoustic instruments, Graveyards explores the harmonic and acoustic possibilities of everything from the megaphone to the timpani to the stereo electric guitar. Deftly manipulating metal dishes with cello and bass bows, Ben Hall provides the percussion, alongside crashes from his gong and sweeping rhythms from a bass drum. Riggs's stereo guitar set-up crackles in both ears, as he attacks his Les Paul with a tackle box full of tools like springs and resin sticks. John Olson contributes both background tinkerings emitted from a homemade effects box, and eerie, serene melodies from a variety of wind instruments. The end result are sounds provocatively and inspiringly unrecognizable.
